Jackie and Kunle are busy professionals. Kunle was pursuing his Masters degree in marketing and Jackie her PHD in project management/Education. The two resided in Georgia, Atlanta but wanted to have they wedding here in Chicago as they have the majority of family here. Kunle is Nigerian and Jackie is from the Caribbeans ; her Dad is from the British Virgin Islands and Her Mum is from the US Virgin Islands.
They reached out to us because they wanted a team who will understand and is aware of the art of both cultures and bring on ideas to fuse both cultures for their wedding day. And we did that and more! We worked closely with both couple to incorporate their culture through the outfits, food and the music. I made sure to allow ample time for both family to dance into the reception with their favorite local song and my favorite part was when the Bride’s family dance in with they national flags in the hands and gave the entire guest a show! We allowed enough time for them the entire bridal party and the couple to change into their second Nigerian attires to highlight the transition and fusion of the two becoming one.
Our proudest moment was when Jackie walked down the aisle to meet her Kunle; you see their wedding had been postpone due to COVID and I was simply glad to have been part of the ups and downs and to providing support in such tough times.
Their wedding was so much fun and filled with love and everyone had a great time!
